Mike Field and Mike Butler are reporting for duty on the HMS Surprise, with Captain Jack Aubrey at the helm, as he travels the world in pursuit of the Archeron, a possible vessel supplying England's enemy, the French, during the Napoleonic Wars. That's right, it's time for the Peter Weir directed Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World, starring Russel Crowe and Paul Bettany on this episode of Forgotten Cinema. Join the Mikes as they pretty much just gush about how great this film is; from the dialogue to the time given to each character and their relationships to one another. Butler and Field will also discuss the use of practical model work, sets, and filming on real ships that give the film an authentic feel that more than likely would not happen today. The Mikes will also talk about the Aubrey-Maturin series of novels by Patrick O'Brian that the films were based on. They'll also discuss facts about how certain shots were made and what the actors went through to prepare for their roles; from ship and rope work to...violin training? But seriously...this film was up for 10 Academy Awards. If you haven't seen it, go watch it and if you already have, well then, watch it again. So raise the mast and ready the stunsails, please notice the lifeboats at the bow and stern of the vessel, and settle down for (Forgotten Cinema).
